Do we have a on-line site (www) similar to this in Australia?

For those not interested, have a nice day. Happy GC motoring.
Cheers GR8ness

Can't get the link to work.

Absolutely.

Sorry to have 'inadvertently' assumed you couldn't do both.

Try this one. Vehicle Owners | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

you will have to do the search (for Jeep GC complaints, Recalls, TSB's etc) using the links under the "Search for all recalls, investigations and complaints" heading.

If this link doesn't work, just type it (as you see it above) in to the address field of Explorer.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can anyone recommend best adhesive tape for re-attaching SRT flares?

I would ask a panel shop to recommend the best tape

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Has anyone had problems with false alarms with the security system? Mine goes off every few hours for no apparent reason. I can't find any related TSB's. ( I posited this in another thread, but thought I'd try here too).
Thanks,
Russell

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Bonnet switch is the culprit I believe Russell.

Not that I've had repeat false alarms, just someone's hand through the sunroof... or a fly.

Thanks Barboots. Looks like the bonnet switch is part of the catch mechanism, although I can't see how it actually works. No amount of jiggling the bonnet (or kicking the car!) sets it off. I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow, and I'll offer them that clue. If they can't find a problem, I'll see if there's any way to turn the siren off, as I'll be camping for,three months,,and having it go,off in a campsite would be annoying....

Anyone using this particular OBDII interface with success? I'll be using Android...

As that is a Bluetooth ELM327 you should have no issue.
See either of the two recent OBD II threads for more info:

OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Good OBD II App

I would link to wear you're buying it from too. There are some cheap Chinese knock offs that don't last long.

See this for a very cheap one at the moment - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/144804
